HOUSTON TX – Audio Visual Technologies Group is proud to announce that it has been selected to participate in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses initiative.
In the United States, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is a $500 million investment to help small business owners create jobs and economic opportunity by providing them with greater access to education, financial capital and business support services.
“Audio Visual Technologies Group has a long history as a technology services company, and we plan to use that legacy as the foundation for our future growth”, said company president Ashley Brown. She added, “We expect our participation in this Goldman Sachs initiative to help accelerate our growth, and ultimately enable us to create more jobs.”
According to Small Business Administration, small businesses have generated 64 percent of net new jobs over the past 15 years. They represent 99.7 percent of all employer firms and hire 40 percent of high tech workers. Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is designed to tap into that economic power by providing entrepreneurs across the country with the resources they need to grow and create jobs.
In addition to Houston, the program is currently operating in Chicago, Cleveland, Long Beach, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York and Salt Lake City, and will continue to expand to communities across the country.
